SANTA MONICA, Calif.— Killer Tracks today announces that I Can, We Can and Love +, will be released this month via the Killer Tracks Artists Series. A percentage of the revenue from the licensing of the songs will go to Mike Peters’ Love, Hope, Strength Foundation which “leverages the power of music to expand the bone marrow registry.” Two more songs will be released later this year.
The songs were written and sung by Mike Peters, whose band The Alarm produced more than 5 million records worldwide and 16 Top 50 UK singles. Peters is himself a cancer survivor and the subject of a new documentary, The Man in the Camo Jacket, directed by Russ Kendall and produced by Jonathan McHugh, Jonathan Platt, James Chippendale, Alex Colletti and Stash Slionski. The film chronicles Peters’ 8-year battle with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. A special screening of the film will be held on August 3rd at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, followed by a short musical performance and Q&A.
Peters and The Alarm are currently headlining this year’s Warped Tour, which includes a stop in Pomona, California on August 6. Love Hope Strength, named after The Alarm’s 1985 anthem Strength, will have representatives at each Warped Tour date conducting swab drives and donor matches. To date, Love Hope Strength has added over 150,000 individuals to the bone marrow registry, and has created over 3,100 potential life-saving matches for patients around the world.
I Can, We Can and Love +, are vintage Mike Peters: idealistic, impassioned, soaring. “They are very inspiring and motivating songs, and fantastic additions to our Artist Series,” says Killer Tracks VP of Production Carl Peel. “We are very excited to collaborate with Mike and support the work of his wonderful foundation.”
“Killer Tracks continues to support great causes and great artists,” adds McHugh. “Partnering with Mike Peters and Love Hope Strength in helping to promote his film and music has been a blessing.”
Film and television licensing of I Can, We Can and Love + is available exclusively through Killer Tracks.
